Does Fedora Core 2 already use udev? In that case the kernel module
won't be loaded on demand and you have to either run 'modprobe coda'
before starting venus or add 'coda' to /etc/modules so that it gets
loaded automatically whenever the system is booted.

That is a strange error, I thought that updatesrv lets the kernel pick
the socket, so I wouldn't expect it to fail binding to it.
